Ross's father appeared to have closed his eyes just as the camera's shutter clicked. The 48-year-old actress is seen beaming with happiness as she flashed a toothy smile.
She put her arms around her father's shoulders. The actress, who is known for her fashion style, looked divine in red lipstick. She also showed off her perfect curls.
FANS NOTED THEIR SIMILARITIES
Fans inundated the comments section with positive remarks for the actress, who was recently honored with a Fashion Icon Award at the 2020 People's Choice Awards.
One admiring fan noted that Ross's dad was handsome. Another said that the actress looked just like her dad. One said the good-looking father-daughter duo looked like twins.
Although she is admired by many for her ability to make audiences laugh, she admitted that she never considered herself a comedian or funny.
It's not the first time Ross showed off the affection between her and her dad, who is a music executive. Back in 2017, Ross posted a cute video of them together taken in the market.
Ross wrote in the caption how much she loved him and how he makes her laugh. She added that she got her comedic chops from her dad. The post amassed more than 57,000 likes.

SHE GOT HIS HUMOR
Ross, who has been awarded a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, is known for her roles in the comedy series, "Girlfriends" and "Black-ish."
She said in a previous interview that she got her funny side from her dad, adding that she's grateful she got that attitude of her dad who could laugh at himself and at life.
Among her memorable performances was impersonating Beyonce at the 2016 Black Girls Rock! Awards. She has truly made a mark in the world of comedy.
